ISO 14001

In 2013, our Cranfield campus was awarded certification to the International Environmental Management System Standard ISO 14001. This environmental management system provides the framework for setting and achieving the University's environmental objectives: managing and reducing the impact of our environmental incidents to prevent pollution and ensuring we are compliant with applicable environmental legislation and other key requirements. EMS certification has now been extended to include Cranfield Defence and Security.

ISO 50001

In 2019, Cranfield University became officially certified for ISO 50001 for its energy management system. Read our Energy Management Systems Manual. This document sets out the system to manage energy at Cranfield University and subsidiary companies in line with the International Standard for Energy Management Systems, ISO 50001:2011.
